I'm an exposure scientist working on air pollution and public health at the Institute for Social Marketing and Health, University of Stirling, Scotland. My PhD looked at developing behaviour change interventions using low-cost air quality monitors to reduce second-hand smoke in homes in four European countries.
I'm interested in understanding personal exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5), with a focus on home exposures. I'm involved in work on biomass fuel smoke pollution across sub-Saharan Africa, collaborating with academics in Kenya, Malawi, Ghana, Uganda, South Africa and the DRC to develop strategies to address this source of exposure in line with the UN sustainable development goals. I am also interested in exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke following indoor public places smoking bans, including occupational exposures of care workers entering clients' homes.
I joined ISMH in January 2018 following two and a half years at the Scottish Centre for Indoor Air, University of Aberdeen.
